RE: strange gardening year

Yep. Unusual for Sept. Mint will croak during an extended drought,
especially in terra cotta pots. The last real good rain we had was in
April. May was low, June, July and August we never get anything anyway
and September is not living up to expectations. Hopefully October will
bring relief. I hope it's not like that bad drought we had 4 years ago
when I was still watering in November. Now that was bad....
